Main Text:

Special issue now online: The Legacy of John Sinclair
Guest edited by Patrick Hanks

John Sinclair was the most radical thinker on the lexicon of the 20th century.
His insights into the nature of collocations and discourse structure have
inspired new ways of analysing meaning. He was never afraid to face up to
awkward questions such as the vague and probabilistic nature of meaning and of
evidence of word use. His insistence on close, detailed analysis of evidence
played a major role in the development of the emerging discipline of corpus
linguistics, now universally recognised as a cornerstone of modern lexicography.
In this memorial issue, some of his leading former colleagues and admirers from
Asia, Africa, and America as well as Britain and Europe, present a broad
spectrum of papers inspired by the Sinclairian approach ranging from practical
dictionary making to new developments in linguistic theory.
